Mohr set to wear maroon
WILL Mohr has claimed his first Queensland jersey and he is determined it won't be his last.
Will was selected for the Queensland Under-13 team after representing the Central Queensland Capras at state trials recently.
"He had to work hard to get into the state side," dad John Mohr said.
"(Will played) four games with no break; it was a game every day.
"He was pretty knocked up by the end of it."
Will plays for the Clermont Junior Bears and Mohr senior said his son was happy to have been chosen for the Queensland side.
"It is the first time he has been selected for state," he said.
"He has gone to state trials in school-based football but never made it."
John accompanied his son to the state trials at Kawana Waters and said he wouldn't have missed it.
"He played some of his best football," John said. "I am really pleased."
Will received a Queensland jersey but will not get to play in it just yet, as John explained competition was over for the year and Will was back to studying at school.
"Next year he will start playing other sides," he said.
The state jersey did prove useful last Wednesday when the Queensland State of Origin side claimed a seventh series win with Will cheering his team on.
"He reckons in a few years he will be playing in State of Origin," John said.
Clermont Junior Bears club president Carolyn Moriarty praised Will's selection and said it was well-deserved.
"Will gives 100% at training and games," Moriarty said.
"His parents travel the countryside to support his rugby league.
"I'm just glad he is on our team and not the opposition."
